Basking in Gold

“Basking in Gold – Immerse in the Radiance of Gentle Loyalty”

This is an eloquent expression of tranquility and serenity, as seen through Monica’s unique Hybrid Fluid Realism style. At the heart of this piece is a golden retriever, illustrated through a vibrant application of acrylic pouring, imbuing the canine form with a sense of life and movement. The dog’s closed eyes and peaceful demeanor are lovingly crafted in traditional oil, lending a depth of emotion to the scene. This sense of tranquility is heightened by the oil-rendered prairie backdrop, its expansive beauty perfectly capturing the soothing aura of a fading evening. “Basking in Gold” is more than a painting—it’s an intimate observation of nature’s calm, an encapsulation of a golden retriever’s quiet joy in the embrace of the setting sun.
